Have you ever come across the problem of forgetting password for your Windows 7 operating system? If you have, you may find that it will take you some money to reset password with the computer software which will be purchase on the Internet, or it will take you much time to reinstall the Win 7 operating system. If you have not, I want to tell you that you had better create a windows 7 password reset disk when you can have access to your Windows OS at this time. So you will know how to create a password reset disk through the instructions below:
You should click Start, Control Panel, User Accounts and Family Safety, and User Accounts in order, and you will go to a new window. Then you should click Create a password reset disk on the left pane, and then insert your prepared CD/DVD into your computer. Then you could click Next button and follow the forgotten password Wizard to create a password reset disk for Win 7. And remember to put away your made disk away so that nobody can find it which can strengthen your computer’s safety.
Except this method, you can enter it from another way--In the Windows start menu search box type “pas” (without the quotes) and select the “Create a password reset disk...” link, there will be no User Account Control prompt but it will take you to the Forgotten Password Wizard directly, of course before you should insert the media you intend to use into your computer. After you finish your task, you should click Finish to close the wizard.
Both of the two methods can help you create a Win 7 password reset disk, and in fact the principle is the same. And when you forgot password, you could use the disk to reset windows password.
